Home sweet home mate.  I look after that Morrisons store too.

Keep a eye out for Jim then, he will be buying boxes of them. 

Massive Rangers fan, only problem was never being able to get him to keep it down a bit. 

 

Funny my Grandad nearly moved the family there in the 70s for work

That's how we got here in '66.  British Steel, the great Scottish exodus.

I'd ask for Jim's surname, but there's plenty of them here !  Including my own late father and son........

Yeah my Grandad came over in around 62/63 from Belfast for work

 

Norrie

Haven't seen him for a good few years. He was based in Northampton offices and just covered here but he'd be retired now. 

 

Told me the story of going top Wembley for the famous Scottish win and meeting a mate on the bus coming home,who had the penalty spot they'd somehow dug up and nicked

Hahahhahaaha, I knew a few guys who went to that game and came home with all sorts of bits they claimed were from Wembley.  Drinking whisky for breakfast with cans to wash them down on the day of a match.  Absolute fucking headbangers.

I know one Norrie family, but don't know if they're Scottish.

My maternal Grandmother was Scottish so I have always hoped Scotland do well. I'd piss myself laughing if Scotland beat England next Sunday too. 

I have Scottish blood too and French and Irish, England obviously. I will support a Wales too.

I remember that. Horizontally, wasn’t it. I always assumed it was where you were supposed to tuck it in your shorts.

Yeah. It was round the ribcage area. Only Simon Cowell would pull his shorts that high if he bought footy kits.

Scottish and Irish are my roots too,like about 90% of Merseyside families.

I have a yellow Brazil top.  Wanted one for years, and nearly every time I wear it I'm fucking plagued with all manner of little flying bastards.  Still love that top, but I rarely wear it.

"Piss off babe it's me favourite top"

I bought that 1990 Germany shirt but it had some weird stitching across the middle like someone had sewn two shirts together. Really uncomfortable. 

I mean, the designers weren't soft .....

Out of rep, so have a photograph of China Town, San Francisco, circa 1957, instead.

Hahahaha when I was a kid we went up for a Celtic game and in my dads mates garden they had a bit of mesh in a circle on the lawn in the corner of the garden "Thats the penalty spot from wembley that is wee man" I expect there are about 600 penalty spots from that day dotted around Scottish gardens.

How could blue not exist when the sky looks blue, the sea looks blue, eyes are blue. I could click that link and find out but I don't want too.

It's not particularly informative and strikes me as a load of poo.  I'll take their word for it that some (but obviously not all) ancient civilisations lacked words for certain colours; that's curious, but it's not enough to say "blue didn't exist".

Actually, I take that back. I've watched the video now and it's got some interesting stuff in it.

Looks like the press have all been briefed that Everton are set to appoint Nuno Espirito Santo. 

 

A fairly underwhelming appointment. 

The power shift is on! Erm, again apparently!

A guy who used to cover for us was Scottish but lived in Corby and he used to bring them in for us when he went home, if not he got them in Morrisons in Corby, the one by me does them and they aren't to bad. 

I got a Scotch pie from a chippy in Glasgow once and the filthy bastard threw it in the fryer before handing it over. I'm a proper detrivore who will eat just about anything, but I had to throw half of it away, because it was too slimy to be edible.

To be fair some of them are actually quiet funny taking the piss out of it all
 
 
On the bright side, if it is true, Duncan will take over in November and we’ll finally start moving in the right direction. And no, we won’t get relegated either you bells
 
 
 
 
 
Lots of disappointment on here tonight, I'm not surprised, this is the Alex Iwobi of managerial signings. Unambitious and lazy scouting.

However, in Nuno's defence (cos somebody oughta):

– He is a nice guy with a very likeable personality
– This is a massive step up for him and will be eager to prove himself
 
 
 
 
What is good brand of Portuguese beer I can get from Tesco?
 
 
 
 
I try to take a positive out of everything so here goes.

At least he’s not Eddie Howe. That’s all I’ve got currently.
 
 
 
 
To be fair to Nuno they sold his best players and didn’t replace them. Luckily for us we’ve got 2 flying wing backs and 2 great holding mids in Delph and gabamin. Not to mention 3 decent cbs so happy days really init
 
 
 
 

Saint Domingo

Player Valuation: £70m
There was more positivity for Silva who had less pedigree. We are an odd bunch.
 
 
(Proving once again you don't have to use facts on GOT)
(Nuno Honours)

Manager[edit]

Wolverhampton Wanderers

 

Marco Silva

Manager[edit]

Estoril

Sporting

Olympiacos

 

 

 

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

 

 

 

 

Whats Portuguese for glass ceiling?


Andre Gomes

 

 

 

 

 

Just last season we were begging for our manager to hit the glass ceiling.

Nar man, Carlo had us in the hunt for top 4 with 3 weeks to go.

This will be forgotten in time cos hes a RAT and we finished 10th, but we reached for the stars.

Dave will have to come up with a new name for him now. Can't be calling him Nuno Holy Spirit while associated with the Bloos.

 

How long will it take to indoctrinate him into their way of thinking and the snide cuts towards us?
